SUCCEED is an innovative post-secondary education program for students with intellectual disabilities and autism, provided by Howard Center in collaboration with area colleges including University of Vermont and Community College of Vermont. Students have the opportunity to participate in four program areas: Student Housing/Independent Living, Education, Campus Life, and Career Development. SUCCEED provides students with the tools to live more independently while actively participating in a true college experience. Students graduate with the ability to live in their own apartment, develop meaningful friendships, obtain fulfilling employment and establish social connections within their community.
